Chunky Monkey Crafts | Simple And Snarky | CAS Embossing

Today I’m sharing another card for my snarky series, inspired by a stamp set from Chunky Monkey Crafts, who I am designing for. As with the other cards in this series I kept the design clean and simple. I used an embossing folder to create the background of my card and accompany the sentiment.

I began this very simple card by creating the embossing. I put my card base into the Subtle embossing folder such that the back flap of the card was hanging out. I then placed it into my Big Shot and intentionally positioned the top plate of my sandwich to be staggered and not covering the entire card area. This meant that when I ran the card through the machine in the embossing folder an area at the bottom of the card was left unembossed.

After removing the card base from the embossing folder I decided to further define the edge of the embossed area. I did this by placing the card base into my paper cutter and using the score blade to add a score mark. I put the card facing down, so when I scored it the front would have the scoreline up (as a hill, rather than a valley).

Finally I added my sentiment. I picked one of the stamps from Narky Sentiments 2, positioned it into the unembossed area at the bottom of my card, and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

This definitely is a very quick and simple design. I think the part that took me the longest was making sure I had the embossing folder lined up correctly to get the look I wanted! The main picture doesn’t quite show the embossing as much as I would like, but you can see it a bit better in the close up, and it shows even more in real life.
